Kits leak all the time and many months ahead of any official announcement. Mexico’s 2018 World Cup kits leaked in January of 2017 but were not officially announced until November 2017. Adidas is already looking to update Mexico’s look for 2019.
My first reaction is the kit has potential. The last away kit grew on me but I was not a fan of the home kit. I had my reasons.
Adidas officially unveils the kit and it is revealed that Mexico will get its own font. While the kit has grown on me since it was leaked back in December, I know the number font they are using will not.
Adidas also said the kit was inspired the Azteca, the official ball of the 1986 World Cup in Mexico. I can definitely see where the kit design took its inspiration and appreciate the call back to the 1986 World Cup.
What are your thoughts on this new away kit?
